Does Wufoo Distinguish Between Characters and Words in Entries?

Here’s a scenario for you: Let’s say you’re setting a limit on an entry – say 1 word. You may wonder: Will Wufoo distinguish between any random letter or number when counting the characters?

It’s a good problem to wonder about, because it may certainly determine how you set up entries.

Wufoo will count any character that has spaces on either side as a word. So:

1 character and 1 word: "a"
       Two characters and one word: "an"

Additionally, Wufoo won’t do any “dictionary” scans to verify what you entered is an actual word, so make sure you double-check!
